Q2

Ms. Frizzle has three daughters: Allison, Belle, and Claire. Today, January 1, their ages are, respectively,

\displaystyle \begin{array}{cccccc} & A(n) = -(n + 30)+(2n + 5) \\ & B(n) = (7 -n)-(32 -2n) \\ & C(n) = (n - 26)-(n + 4) + (n - 3) \\ \end{array}

All ages are expressed in years, and n represents Ms. Frizzle's age.

Q16

Sam plays a game in which he selects three different numbers from 1 to n (n > 3). After he selects his numbers, four different winning numbers from 1 to n are chosen, one at a time. Sam wins if all three of his numbers are among the four winning numbers.

The first number chosen is one of Sam's! His probability of winning is now given by

\displaystyle P(n) = \frac{24}{n^3 - 3n^2 + 2n} \div \frac{3}{n}

a) Simplify P(n) and state restrictions on n.

b) What would Sam's probability of winning be if

  • i) n = 5?
  • ii) n = 4?
